Yankees Struggling Entering Subway Series

The New York Yankees have found themselves falling further and further behind the AL East lead thanks to a stretch that has seen the squad go just 4-8 so far in August. Offensive inconsistencies have plagued the Bronx Bombers in that span, as the Yankees have averaged 6.5 rpg in their wins compared with just 1.9 in their losses. Up next for the Yanks is a home-and-home series with the New York Mets.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone OVER in 4 of the Mets’ last 5 games against the Yankees.
  • The Yankees are 5-2 SU in their last 7 games when opening a series.
  • The Mets are 1-5 SU in their last 6 games after a win.

The Yankees will start righty Luis Cessa in place of an injured Masahiro Tanaka. Cessa has a 6.23 ERA in his four starts with the big club, a far cry from the solid 3.14 ERA he has out of the pen. The 25-year-old has started just one game since the beginning of July, an outing in which he allowed three runs and was pulled after 3.2 innings.

Rafael Montero remains in the rotation mostly due to necessity and will take the bump for the Mets in this one. Since the beginning of July, the righty has a 6.48 ERA and has allowed opposing batters to hit .316. The biggest concern for Montero has been the long ball, as he has given up seven home runs in his past four starts.
